    Jess knocked it out of the park with some really trippy pedal steel licks on the most recent song I sent him. Awesome work as always.

    Jess played a killer Pedal steel track on the most recent song I've sent him. So far everything he's tracked for me has went above and beyond my expectations.

    Jess played some laid down an incredible dobro track on another song I had sent him. I can't say enough good things about his playing.

  14. Review By: deerockcountry Dec 29, 2017

    Jess is truly an amazing musican.I m doing a country soul vibe with a Memphis feel.Jess captured the feel and with the perfect steel sound.I am beyond happy and Jess will certainly be playing on numerous songs on my forthcoming CD.

  15. Review By: beardilocks Dec 27, 2017

    The Pedal Steel that Jess Perkins recorded for my song Made of Stone could not have come out any better. The playing is impeccable and it took the song to new heights. Additionally I had the track back from him in an insanely turn around time (under 6 hours).

  16. Review By: beardilocks Dec 26, 2017

    Jess did a phenomenal job playing Pedal Steel on my song Tell Me Mama and with minimal instruction other than the key and tempo. The quality of the recording was outstanding as well.
